INTRODUCTION The loss of muscle strength with age increases the likelihood of chronic conditions, including metabolic syndrome (MetS). However, the minimal threshold of muscle strength at which the risk for MetS increases has never been established. OBJECTIVE This study aimed to identify a threshold of muscle strength associated with MetS in men. METHODS We created receiver operating curves for muscle strength and the risk of MetS from a cross-sectional sample of 5685 men age <50 yr and… CONTINUE READING
